Mother's Day is a little over a week away. And Pattie's Creations has the perfect challenge for you: a Mother's Day card.
For this challenge, I decided to make a pop up card using Pattie's Tulip in aVase image from her Esty store. I printed the image twice as I also wanted to add dimension to a few of the tulip heads. The pop up base is a die from Sizzix that I adhered the Copic marker colored image. I added a rub-on or two, and the inside was complete.
Next I had to decide how to decorate the front panel. After playing around a bit, I decided to used a VLVS rubber stamp for my sentiment. I stamped this in the center of a Spellbinder's Lacey Oval die cut (#4) and wove twine around the outside of the die cut as well as the first layer of the front. I must confess that this color twine was a happy accident. I had sprayed the quilled strips of paper with Smooch Spritz (Electric Blue) and some of it had gotten on my fingers. I was moving one of the twine bobbins out of the way and some of the ink got on parts of the twine. Instead of throwing it away, I decided that it was worth a try to see if I could dye it like you can ribbon. I retrieved a plastic bag, put the cantaloupe striped twine in the bag and spritzed more Smooch Spritz inside the bag and just swooshed it around. Needless to say, I was very happy with the results. Parts of the twine didn't get dyed, but other parts became different colors.
I pop dotted the sentiment and completed the card with my quilled pieces. Now it's your turn to show us your Mother's Day creation at Pattie's Creations Challenge Blog. You'll have two weeks, and remember, you must use an image (either digi or rubber) for our challenges.
I'm entering this in the following challenges: Shopping Our Stash (Mothers' Day or girly); Sweet Stamps (for mom); Whoopsi Daisy (flowers); Creative Inspirations paints (flowers).
